Wine Advocate-Parker :
Zind-Humbrecht's 2006 Riesling Brand Selection de Grains Nobles represents what became of this vintage's crop from their old vines in the Schneckenburg and is the estate's first ever Brand S.G.N. (indeed, only their third from Riesling in any site). A noble hint of fungus, faded lily, chamomile, and confiture of peach and yellow plum mark the nose as well as a silken, palpably dense, silken palate which adds salted caramel to the wine's alluring roster. This has terrific breadth without weight, and confitured persistence without being cloying. I find the corresponding V.T. more striking as well as more fun to drink today, but I am confident that this S.G.N. is another of those rare wines of its vintage that you could confidently cellar for two or more decades.
